PARTICIPATING WHOLE LIFE PLAN (PLAN-201)
This plan provides for insurance coverage throughout the life of the policyholder. This is suitable for those who wish to make adequate provision for their dependents in the eventuality of their sudden demise but cannot afford very high premium of other plans.
The main benefit of this plan is the satisfaction and mental peace that the Life Assured enjoys during his life time without bothering too much for his loved ones when he is no more. Even though there is no maturity benefits under the policy, the policyholder has the option to take back the Sum Assured with vested bonus provided the policy has run for 40 years and the policyholder has completed his 80 years of age.
The policyholder has an option to choose Accident Benefit Rider during the term of the policy or up to the age of 70, whichever is earlier. In the event of unfortunate death due to accident when the policy is in force, an additional amount equal to accident benefit sum assured is paid along with the claim. (This Rider is available for a maximum sum assured of US$100,000 for an individual, inclusive of all the policies, held by him). In case of total and permanent disability arising as a result of an accident, all future premiums to the extent of sum assured equivalent to accident benefit sum assured are waived and an amount equal to accident benefit sum assured will be paid in equal monthly installment spread over 10 years.
